Sandcrawler PSA: Abdullah al-Nafisi is a Blowhard
These aren't the biological weapons smuggled over the Mexican border you're looking for.
Seriously, al-Nafisi is a ranting professor from Kuwait. His lectures on the Muslim Brotherhood and other subjects are often used by al-Qaeda and its supporters. But if you ask me the speech just a lot of al-Nafisi spewing forth hot air.
So yes his fantasies are used by as-Sahab and other terrorist supporters to promote ideology. But so far as this being an "exclusive" reporting a direct threat "to smuggle a biological weapon into the United States via tunnels under the Mexico border". That's pretty far fetched.
Would they like to? Hell yes, but you don't have to panic right this minute. Also a blowhard like like al-Nafisi would be the last one to know in advance.
Just my opinion, go ahead and panic now if you really want to.
Much more menacing is the release by al-Qaeda of two tapes in two days just before Obama's speech in Egypt. Is this just media whoring by al-Qaeda or something more. I reckon we'll find out.
